Anyone else having issues accessing RT?

Unread post by Wolf » Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:39 am

Occasionally I watch RT shows to 'get the other side of the story'.

The recent BS banning Russian athletes from competing in the Olympics under their nation's flag inspired me to do this again.

Last night I tried to access RT news but it would not function on any of my devices.
This morning I was able to watch half of the news before it stopped playing but was unable to watch Crosstalk.

I even tried to see if the site would work on TOR but it caused TOR to crash???

The last time this happened was when the MSM was pushing hard on the lie of Russia 'invading' Crimea. RT was constantly in and out for months during this period.

Anyone else having trouble accessing this 'foreign actor' news organisation? (They were forced to register as a foreign-backed entity in the US last week)

No problem with access. My Internet Explorer went straight there. (But I am not on any Government watch list yet. lol)
I had not seen RT before you mentioned it. I usually read the Green and Fabulous Australian ABC. Sometimes when the ABC is being too much, I will go to AlJazeera for world news and views. But thanks, I like what I see there on the RT site and will explore it more over the next few weeks.

Was watching a bit of it on Foxtel as I like to keep up to date with the politics of foreign affairs and other points of view.

After watching a couple of hours of it I turned the channel over as it was nothing more than Trump bashing after his embassy decision.
